Please explain the implications if my lawyer’s firm is expelled from the Principality Solicitor panel ahead of completing my conveyancing in Northop?

First, this is very unlikely to happen. In most cases even where a law firm is removed off of a panel the lender would allow the completion to go ahead as the lender would appreciate the difficulties that they would place you in if you have to instruct a new solicitor days before completion. In a worst case scenario where the lender insists that you instruct a new firm then it is possible for a very good lawyer to expedite the conveyancing albeit that you may pay a significant premium for this. The analogous situation is where a buyer instructs a lawyer, exchanges contracts and the law firm is shut down by a regulator such as the SRA. Again, in this situation you can find lawyers who can troubleshoot their way to bring the conveyancing to a satisfactory conclusion - albeit for a fee.

This question may be naive but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a garden flat in Northop. Do I pick up the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If so, I will find a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Northop?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion.

Your conveyancer should review the registered title as conveyancing in Northop will occasionally identify restrictions in the title documents which prohibit certain changes or need the permission of another owner. Many works call for local authority planning consent and approval under the building regulations.

It is not advisable to proceed with a house purchase without a solicitor. The council's solicitor are not acting for you. You need a solicitor for a number reasons. One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Virgin Money, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel.
